Connect to the Right Web Host with The WHIR

Choosing a web hosting service can be a daunting task, especially if you’re new to websites and hosting services. The WHIR can take the “bite” out of finding a web hosting company. Web Host Industry Review (WHIR) touts themselves to as the “the largest news organization and consumer resource dedicated to the web hosting industry, publishing since 2000.”

WHIR consists of the following:

If you’re considering moving away from free blog hosting platforms like WordPress.com or Blogger.com to a self-hosted blog (and there are many benefits of doing so), then you need a web hosting company. WordPress provides you with a list of suggested web hosting services, however, the information can be overwhelming if you’re a newbie.

It’s important to do some research first, and you’ll want to compare not only features and prices, but also take into account the opinions of real users. If a web hosting company has only negative reviews, then you should stay away from that one! But keep in mind that often people don’t write reviews if they are happy, but they sure do if they are unhappy. For example, a lot of people complain about 1&1 Hosting [2], but TWE has been on 1&1 since it was founded, and Trisha has used them for many years, with only positive things to say about them. How to navigate all the choices and decide? That’s where WHIR comes in. WHIR can assist you with choosing the RIGHT web host for you!
